First Time Fans Guide
Away Fans Guide

A side with five wins from six home league games meets the division's top goalscorers in a mouth-watering contest at Adams Park as Gareth Ainsworth's men look to continue their incredible start to the new League 1 campaign.

Two points per game from the first quarter of the season have left Wanderers in second place, largely thanks to a formidable record on home soil which has seen Bolton, MK Dons, Southend, Lincoln and Portsmouth all leave empty-handed.

Peterborough suffered the same fate on their last visit, having won seven of their first eight away games prior to Wanderers' 1-0 home win last season, but they're potentially a stronger outfit this time round with the front three of Mo Eisa, Ivan Toney and Marcus Maddison scoring 22 of their 23 league goals already.

Ainsworth has warned of course that Posh carry strength through their whole team, not just the frontline, and now looks to formulate a plan to deliver a third successive victory following triumphs over Pompey and Rochdale.

Team News.jpg

Paul Smyth is close to a return to training but remains sidelined this weekend, while Matt Bloomfield and Nick Freeman could be back, and Joe Jacobson and Alex Samuel face late assessments on their respective injuries.

Nathan Thompson is absent for the Posh, but Darren Ferguson has an otherwise fully-fit squad to call upon.

Ticket News.jpg

Chairboys fans can by online at any time and save £2 through the new TicketCo platform, either on the website at tickets.wwfc.com or the TicketCo Wallet app.

Fans are encouraged to use the online platform rather than queuing to buy a ticket from Ticket Office 1 or 2. Buying online saves you time and money, which can be better spent in the shop, bar or stadium bowl.

Please also note that there will be no cash turnstile facility in the home areas; all fans are required to present a ticket (either the QR code on a smartphone/printout, or a physical ticket).

Supporters are advised to download their QR code to their smartphone wallet, or screenshot it to the camera roll, to prevent any issues using internet data to retrieve the code from emails whilst entering at the turnstile.

Tickets will be available on the day for Peterborough fans.

Whats On.jpg

The Chairboys Village is open for business, sponsored by Printkick, with the Rebellion beer tent, BBQ and live performance from local musician Steph Willis. There's also a Wycombe Leisure Centre target activity, and the chance to try out and win a Dormeo mattress.

There'll be a period of applause shortly before the teams come out ahead of kick-off, as a mark of respect for Adams Park steward Stuart Burrage, who died suddenly last month at the age of 61.

And representatives from Wycombe Homeless Connection will be around the stadium recruiting participants for the Big Sleepout at Adams Park on 23rd November.

And there'll be a Q&A in the Caledonian Suite after the match.
